Its very easy to get the new Google News & Weather app working on the Nexus 5, all you need is root and a root enabled file explorer. First off, youre going to need to use that root file explorer to ho and uninstall/delete the Google News & Weather widget. It should be found in /ststem/app/. Then youll need to reboot. Now download and install the Google News & Weather app. After this, it should be working. Oh, btw, heres the apk http://goo.gl/Iivbtc

I had no issue with SlimRom except it said it wasn't available in my country(The US, weird right?). I just downloaded the .apk and installed it.
